This weekend I report live from Copenhagen Denmark during the Kopenhagen Contemporary Art Weekend (September 1-4). What’s to be learned of the Copenhagen art scene? I’m in the process of picking that up, but so far I’ve heard its hard for artists to engage the larger community here — city dwellers prefer engineering and architecture — so it can be a tough time for the art lovers living in the area.
The art weekend is organized by Wonderful Copenhagen and the Kopenhagen Art Institute in collaboration with the 50 of the city's galleries and museums. I knocked off two on that list today — the National Gallery of Denmark and Andersens Contemporary — which means I should reasonably be able to anticipating viewing the other 48 over the next two days. Just try to keep up with my updates on twitter!
Meanwhile, come Saturday 11 am, I’ll be participating in the social media panel discussion with Laura Jul, social media developer, Copenhagen (Denmark), Mark Rappolt, Art Review, London (UK), AsbjÃ¸rn Poulsen, Hello Monday, Copenhagen (Denmark) and Via remote link Angelina Russo, Museum3, Melbourne (AUS). I won’t be tweeting that, but I’m guessing Hyperallergic’s @hragv and @veken have that covered.
